Monday fog

The fog is back on the river and traffic is light. A Vanes Brothers tug pushed a loaded oil products tanker up from the Arthur Kill heading for Albany around midday.

The only tug at anchor remains the Unico Commodities Teresa, anchored up in the West 90s. With her unusual Liberian registration and empty asphalt barge, she has been here for several days now waiting for a mission.

  1. Why is Liberia such an unusual registration?


    1. The Jones Act requires that cargos being carried between US ports travel on US registered and built vessels. Since tugs mainly work in US domestic waters, they are usually US flagged. This boat is a bit of a mystery to me as it appears to work in US waters with Liberian registry.
